Tributes have been paid to a north-east man who died in a car crash this week.

Chris Gallacher died after his vehicle collided with a lorry parked on the northbound carriageway of the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee road near Gallowfaul, Tealing at around 6am on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old worked at Peter Vardy in Aberdeen and lived in Dundee.

Bruce Millar, the sales director at the company, said he was the “life and soul” of the workshop.

He said: “We are totally devastated at the loss of our friend and colleague, Chris. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him and obviously our thoughts are with his family at this time.”

Mr Millar added: “He was the life and soul of our workshop.

“He was a skilled individual. Even at the tender age of 25, Chris was very skilled and professional at everything he did.

“He had a wicked sense of humour and he will be sorely missed by everyone.

“Peter Vardy himself was in Aberdeen to offer support to colleagues and as a company I’m sure we will be there in the coming days to help his fiancee Nikki and his family. Chris and I share some friends.

“There are a few of us who travel up from Dundee to Aberdeen every day and this is a real tragedy.

“We have actually had a number of customers call into us asking for him and we didn’t want to put any of our customers in a difficult position so we have just been telling them that he was unavailable.”
